UCLA Urology’s Division of Endourology is composed of a team of expert physicians specializing in medical and surgical management of kidney stones, offering state-of-the-art surgical options and comprehensive patient-centered preventative strategies. UCLA Urology was the first institution on the West Coast to offer noninvasive shockwave lithotripsy in 1985 and our physicians remain regional leaders in state-of-the art strategies for kidney stone management.
Our physicians specialize in minimally-invasive management of blockage at the ureteropelvic junction or within the ureter itself. We have expertise in robotic-assisted laparoscopic pyeloplasty as well as advanced endoscopic treatment of ureteral strictures including balloon dilation and laser endopyelotomy. Additionally, our experts have the most extensive experience in Southern California when it comes to managing strictures and obstruction in patients with complex urinary diversions.

Our team of experts offers comprehensive care for men suffering from urinary issues caused by prostate enlargement (also known as BPH). We specialize in advanced endoscopic techniques such as holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) and have the most extensive experience with this procedure on the West Coast. Other available options include UroLift, Rezum, and robotic-assisted laparoscopic simple prostatectomy. We employ a detail-oriented approach to understand our patients’ symptoms, prostate size, and other clinical factors to recommend the most effective and suitable options for each patient.
